Dog or Horse Treat Recipe: Easy Crunchy Pumpkin Apple Cookies ©

We lived in front of an orchard when I was growing up, so Autumn always brings back memories of climbing into the trees and eating way too many apples.  Dogs and horses will often eat a chunk of apple raw and their wild cousins snack on fallen fruit.  We like to make apple season a little more fun with homemade apple dog and horse treats.  🙂 Happy Autumn!

    This is a healthy treat for my dogs. I have tried your recipe and both my schnauzer and collie loves the cookies so I have added this to their weekly treats. They’re really quick and easy to make. Thanks for posting this, I’m always on the hunt for new home made treats for my fur babies:)
